Department of Architecture
At the undergraduate level, the architecture department offers a five-year professional program leading to a bachelor of architecture (B.Arch.) degree.
Department of Art
The undergraduate art program provides a comprehensive education in fine arts techniques as well as a critical understanding of the visual arts. About 60 percent of the requirement for the bachelor of arts in studio art (B.F.A.) degree are studio courses; the remaining courses include liberal arts requirements and electives chosen from throughout the university. Concentrations include painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, electronic imaging, and combined media. The five-year dual degree program enables students to earn a B.F.A. as well as a bachelor of art or bachelor of science.
Department of City and Regional Planning
The Urban and Regional Studies (URS) undergraduate program enables students to develop the insights, knowledge, and technical skills needed to address the challenges of contemporary urban life. URS educates individuals who can make a difference for a neighborhood in transition, a community threatened by dam construction, an endangered park or historic district, a city faced by job loss, or a municipal government seeking to make its citizens secure.
